Myroslav Skoryk (b7/12/1938)

Myroslav Skoryk was born on 13 July 1938 in Lviv (Ukraine). He entered the Lviv Music School in 1945, but two years later both he and his parents were deported to Siberia and were not allowed to return home until 1955. He was subsequently accepted at Lviv Conservatory, where he studied composition with Stanyslav Liudkevych, Roman Simovych and Adam Soltys. During 1960–64 he studied at the Moscow Conservatory, taking the doctoral course with Dmitri Kabalevsky, and upon graduation joined the faculty of the Lviv Conservatory then, in 1967, that of the Kiev Conservatory. Following the death of Borys Lyatoshynsky in 1968, he became one of Ukraine’s most notable professors of composition—his students have included such prominent figures as Yevhen Stankovych, Ivan Karabyts, Oleh Kyva, Vadim Ilyin and Osvaldas Balakauskas. He holds the chair in composition at the Lysenko Music Academy in Lviv, and teaches composition at the National Music Academy in Kiev. In 1968 he was selected as the secretary of the Ukrainian Union of Composers then, in 1988, he became head of the Lviv branch of this organization. He is the winner of the prestigious Shevchenko Prize and holds the title People’s Artist of Ukraine. In spring 2011 he became artistic director of the National Opera in Kiev. He currently resides in Ukraine, though he travels frequently to perform and lecture in Europe, the United States, Canada and Australia.
